So Much to Say

As played by Dave Mattews Band on 'Crash'

Transcribed at 2:45pm by Cody Rahn

(Elaboration is welcome)

\=slide down
/=slide up

(that's about it)


The bass line in this song is very expandable and is very easy to adlib on
becayse it is all basically pieces of an A chord. Lots of sliding and changing
between octaves of a note happens, too. None of the notes are held except
those I have marked as being held.

The bass enters the song with the drums. 

This is the main riff during which Dave is singing the verses.

The slide down from 8 at the end leads into the riff and this is played over
and over until the part I assume to be the chorus or bridge. At the end of the
measure before the chorus, they leave out the slide down from 8. Instead, the 
5 is held through to the beginning of the chorus and hit again there.

(I tried my best to get these lyrics in sync with the line)

               Sometimes,                   I find it's  easy to be myself.

               Sometimes,                   I find it's    better  to be   somebody   else.


     1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &       1   &   2   &   3   &   4   &

E|--/5---5-------0---5---0--/8-------|--/5-----------0---5-------8\------|



After this, they just go back into the verse riff.

Enjoy.
